Faceoff: PandaDoc vs Adobe Sign API (formerly EchoSign API)
Adobe Sign API
|Embedded Signing and Sending|
Expedited sales document workflow deployed faster
Beyond ready-to-run integrations
The REST API simplifies adding document generation and ESIGN and ETA-compliant eSignatures to custom integrations. Adobe Sign offers plenty of integrations but significantly less flexibility and ease of use in customization and personalization of new projects and existing packages.
Create personalized documents
PandaDoc API cuts personalized document creation and processing time relative to Adobe Sign API. Use it to streamline and scale process flows on frequently sent documents. Save and organize images, product data, customer testimonials and more in a well-structured content library. Tokens auto-fill fields with a single click. By contrast, Adobe’s API forces you to deal with Acrobat Pro, a legacy product lacking comparable functionality, so proposal and quote creation requires more manual labor.
Reliable document security
PandaDoc API supports robust security in contract management software with SSAE16 SOC2 compliance. Its SaaS business solution is hosted on the super-secure AWS Cloud, with PCI DSS Level 1 compliant payments accepted via Stripe. Built-in audit trails for internal document changes and external document interactions come standard.
Faster, more accurate quotes
The PandaDoc REST API supports rapid creation of custom pricing tables and quote creation from within the CRM. Pricing tables can include features like optional items, auto-calculated discounts, editable quantities, and multiple-choice selections. The API also offers a convenient Bulk Send capability lacking in Adobe’s offering.
Use PandaDoc API to integrate with custom applications
